News at Eleven: "Published," it seems to me,

suggests [Christian] Ward is far less concerned about the core transgression than he is about the consequences of being caught. "Mistakes" suggests he still thinks of this as some errant drafting exercise, as if our poems are Mad Libs waiting for completion at his hand. And being truly "honest" dictates reaching out not only to the poets involved in your publicized thefts but to the rest of us whom you know to be waiting in the wings.

I am not the only American victim of Ward's plagiarism, instances of which have steadily continued to emerge since the [Helen] Mort revelation.
